Paper Abstract

The steady state behaviour of erbium-doped fibre laser amplifiers and oscillators has been modelled operating at 1.5?m and at 2.7?m. The model has been used to optimise a multimode 2.7?m CW laser using erbium doped fluoride fibre, end pumped by a 793nm laser diode. The laser has been constructed and performed as predicted, giving a threshold of 200mW and a slope efficiency of around 0.5%.
